Who's Sleeping In My House?

This afternoon my roommates showed up.  I have rented a room in my house to this young couple that is moving to my town from England.  (They are originally from California, but were living in England)  They needed a place to stay while they look for something else and they wait for their stuff to cross the pond.

They arrived today.  I talked to them briefly this afternoon, before I had to leave.  When I got back they were up in their room and I have not heard much from them.  I know they split a pizza, because my house smelled like pizza when I go home.

This is the first time I have ever had to live with anyone who is not my family, since I was in college.  Of course, unlike when I was in school I am not sharing a bedroom, but they are still in the house.

Now, in the brief time I talked to them, they seemed really nice and I sure it will be OK.  They are staying about 2 month, maybe 3.

Another change that I am getting used to.

Jim: Just remember that it may be as uncomfortable for them as it is for you...

I was in the odd position to have to rent a "room" (from someone else) after my separation. The first was very uncomfortable, as I felt my room was my only space. After I moved down to this area I asked my new "landlord" if I also had use of the common areas, "Of course you do" she said... Sometimes you have to make them feel comfortable, before you can feel that same comfort...
